Graham Gano Named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week Winner

Gano turns in a big day against his former team last week in a Giants victory.

Giants kicker Graham Gano has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance in Sunday's 25-3 victory over the Carolina Panthers.

Gano converted three field goals of 49, 53, and 44 yards against his former team. His performance was the fourth time in Giants history a kicker booted three field goals longer than 40 yards in a game.  

Gano's ten field goals of 50+ yards in just 23 games is a franchise career record. Joe Danelo previously held the mark of nine since he left the Giants following the 1982 season.
